even though scientists were telling us 40 years ago we could expect the kinds of extreme weather conditions we have seen globally in the last five to ten years. it was almost four years ago, what human beings are put go into the atmosphere we can expect these climate patterns. we are seeing higher global temperatures year after year. we are seeing more frequent and extreme storms. >> being a communicator, you want to be fair and open, you don't want to worry people or steer people. you know people are smart. they know about their weather and climate. they know that it is changing. >> certainly i think on a global scale we have seen temperatures rising over the past few
decades. the numbers are there. there are observations that these things are occurring. the way we live our lives will change. we see it when we do the news reports about water rationing. it will change the way we live. we may more to keep our houses comfortable. people living on hills, you may not be able to build there anymore. people living in low-lying areas the government may say its floodplain, little things and big things is how the weather is going to change our lives over the next generation, let's say. ♪ ♪ >> i could go on and on technince i started weather over 40 years ago. >> i'm spencer christian. >> when i first did the weather in 1972, we had a plex si covered glass map in the studio. i had a grease pencil and i drew
the symbols and drew snowflakes. then we got into something else, that allows a person to stand in front of a screen but all the images you see at home is somehow superimposed and transmitted. >> it's been the advent of the computer that has made our job better in the sense we are forecasting better, in the sense we can see things longer out, but also raised expectations and made it harder in that respect. everybody expects you work with computer modems, aren't they perfect? no, not really but they are getting better. these weather computer models that have algorithms, we can't do them by hand. it takes a super computer three
hours to crunch a forecast. you try doing that by hand or old computers. they also have helped us display what we know in a way that makes sense to everybody at home. >> live doppler 7-hd is a critical part of our storyelling telling, our weather forecasting where is the rain now and where is it going. it can pick up moisture. >> basically sat satellite technology and radar technology has given us the ability to provide accurate forecasts, to go from three-day forecasts to seven-day forecasts. >> doppler radar is a huge tool in the arsenal of meteorologists not just by us but even the media the people at kgo. their doppler radar is a very important tool. >> i saw something on our doppler that indicated there was a real strong cell, the
potential where it looked a little bit concerning. this is isn't something we see very often. literally, severe thunderstorm warning and tornado warning has been issued for santa clara county including the city of morgan hill. >> when you see a tornado on live doppler 7-hd you can see the wind moving in opposite directions moving right next to each other. the old radars you had to look at the hook and looking at precipitation shield as a hole. by the thing it makes a hook echo it's already too late you have missed the lead time to warn people. >> one of the most important parts of my job is to warn the public of up coming danger. >> our system is so sensitive it does it better than any system out there. >> still could to come, what role can you play in forecasting. see how soc radio radio is chang
we know that weather plays a huge role in people's lives but i didn't have any idea how social media was so powerful. until we had one storm hit and i was amazed how much how many people respond order facebook and twitter. our viewers are the eyes and ears of what is happening out there. >> it's very touching to know that people who watch us do what we do make a personal connection with us. >> i love social media because it's so interactive. now anybody can get on twitter and facebook and do pictures of weather that is happening. the radar can show you what is going on in the clouds and fog in the clouds but people out there seeing it, taking the pictures and telling me what is happening is just another layer of protection.
>> the weather experience, you come to learn when you have a cut off low, it does have a mind of its own. >> you have to remember what happened in the past and take that into consideration. oftentimes you do have bh get of that gutted feeling. >> i was in little rock, arkansas. one day we had 52 tornadoes in the middle of january. grandmother was baby sitting her granddaughter and getting ready to watch the news. i was listening to the ham radio operators and sky warners. i got on the air and told it where it was going. she grabbed the granddaughter and went into the hallway and got down and prepared for the tornado to come. about 20 or 30 seconds that updated, a tree fell right on the living room where the granddaughter was.
>> i love the fact that i'm reporting on one topic that has such profound effect on people's lives. its responsibility that i take seriously. we do much better job than when i got in the business years ago. we do a much better job just decades ago. accuracy people strive for. we don't want to miss a forecast. we don't want to say it's going to rain half an inch and and coe sprinkles and you cancelled your plans. we don't want that as much as you don't want that. you lose your credibility. >> i think the public, they see us on tv for such a short amount of time. they don't actually realize how much time it takes to put together that minute 30 or two minute weather slotted.
claire: i am so excited to be cooking some of my updated vintage recipes today, and this one is fabulous. it's chicken paprika, and it's a really hearty, homey dish with some wonderful flavors. this is actually a traditional hungarian recipe known as paprikash, and it pops up in basically every cookbook i have from the fifties, and i've been dying to try it. this is so delicious, really hearty, really homey, and has wonderful flavors. so, to start, i have my chicken, which i've patted dry, because i want a really crispy skin. i'm just going to add some salt and pepper. and i'll season the other side while it's cooking. and i have a heavy-bottomed cast iron pot here heating up, and i'm not going to be fully cooking my chicken
